Why Youth Sports Are Soooo Important
Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to their tissues and helping the cardiovascular system work more efficiently. The increased blood flow is raising the oxygen levels in their body. This helps lower their risk of heart diseases, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and heart attack later in life. The more they engage in exercise and sports the better it is for their physical health. Regular exercise can also lower their blood pressure and triglyceride levels.
Mental & Emotional Health
There are also social benefits that kids experience when they play sports. Playing sports, especially when it’s on a team, allows them to meet other kids, bond with others, create new friendships, and actively develop social skills through those interactions.
|Teaches Life Lesson
Sports also benefit children by teaching them important life lessons. Playing sports teaches the importance of hard work, and that no matter who you are, you work hard to be the very best you can be. It also teaches you to respect and accept others, including your teammates, your opponents, the officials, your coaches, and everyone involved in the sport. One of the key lessons sports teach is teamwork, which is an invaluable life skill.
